of their skin but by the content of their character. i have a dream. >> good morning from washington. it's friday august 23, 2013. i'm chuck todd. this is a special edition of "the daily rundown." we're looking ahead to the 50th anniversary of that famous 1963 march on washington. for many americans, 50 years ago feels like yesterday. but of course for millions of others, including myself who weren't even born yet, in an ironic way, the grand memorial of granite and marble that now stands might make that history feel more distant. particularly for many young people today. we remember dr. king's march as an historical event. through grainy film and archive photos. but for each of us, those four words, "i have a dream," have a different and special renaissanreno sans. since then, every political protest in this country has borrowed from what the leaders of the march on washington for jobs and freedom were able to achieve. tomorrow, thousands will retrace their steps. next week, president obama will mark the 50th anniversary of the march with a speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial. i

a remarkable op-ed in the tennessean defending governing and bipartisanship. wrote, washington needs more, not fewer, conservatives who know how to govern. i know if you only have 45 votes and you need 60 senators to get something important done, like balancing the budget, then you have to work with other people. that is, if you really care about solving the problem. if you really want to get it resolved instead of just making a speech. as presidential hopefuls start trekking to iowa, the republican chairman of iowa's largest county switched its party registration to independent. in his resignation letter, the polk county chairman write, i'm disappointed with the republican party at the national level. i'm disappointed with the republican party at the statewide level. i'm disappointed with the republican party at the countywide level. helping a dysfunctioning party that does not want to address its problems is enabling it. this fight between the establishment and money wing of the gop and the tea party has taken place behind the scenes. it's clear now that many believe they should fight b

on washington and of course delivered the i have a dream speech. take a look at the front page of "the new york times." 1963. the language itself is just dramatic. you see the picture. it's funny to see on the left, president kennedy signed the bill to a vert a rail strike. kin did i was shot to death a few months later. the march helped pave the way for the civil rights act of 1964 and the voting rights act of 1965. it wasn't until the year 2,000 that all 50 states officially observed martin luther king dare. there are a number of events planned today. just before 3:00 p.m. president obama will speak at the lincoln memorial. preceding him will be speeches by former presidents jimmy carter and bill clinton. and in exclusive video provided to "meet the press," president bill clinton took the opportunity to reflect on the march and martin luther king's legacy. >> on august 28th, 1963, i was 17 years old. i knew that martin luther king was scheduled to give the speech so i made sure i was home. it was during summer vacation between my junior and senior years in high school. so i was home sitting i

in don't blink. >> scary stuff np director of washington examiner and washington reporter for the "daily beast." mark, i will start with you. how surprising. in all seriously, the thing about ted cruz is for a long time it was, there was 17 or so tea partiers in the house and it was easy to say, it is the house. and ted cruise legitimized that part of the tea party elevated it to a national level. wouldn't you say? >> i don't think ted cruz did it. i think the tea party did it itself when they add tremendously successful 2010 election. and since then learned that it is not so easy in american politics. you have to do successive elections. and they've kept to it. they kept organized. and they elect smed significant people like ted cruz. >> but it does feel like because he is? the senate, there is this division of the house. they are whacky and the senate is this more thoughtful body and to have a senator i do think changes dynamic a little bit with the tea party. >> one would hope so. whether you're coming from the left or right in this country, there is a tremendous yearning as my examin

in washington to honor dr. king's crusade. but sadly, sadly, most of the speeches were heavy on grievance, light on problem-involving. we heard a small but a criticism directed at irresponsible behavior that leads to chaos and ruin but not much. however, we did hear a lot about racial profiling. and voter identification requirements. we heard questionable comparisons of trayvon martin to immitt til. we heard the continuing mantra of more government money to fix social problems that can only be fixed in the home. intelligent americans know it is the collapse of the traditional family that is wreaking havoc in the african-american community. other issues while some somewhat important are essentially a side show. if dr. king were alive today he would be broken hearted what has happened to the traditional family and not only among blacks, in our competitive society the ill educated of all colors are likely to fail. good education is a partnership between parents and teacher fns if they are derelict read and study at home teachers cannot wave a magic wand. if a child has no guidance in the house. he

for the top story. president obama out there for the problems in washington. >> i'm willing to do whatever it takes to get congress and republicans in congress in particular it, to think less about politics and party and think more about what's good for the country. i have made this argument to my republican friends privately. and by the way sometimes they say to me privately i agree with you. but i'm worried about a primary from somebody in the tea party back in my district. >> with us now to react, cathy aru. the founder of catalina magazine and contributing editor to the "the washington post." so after five years, don't you think the blame game is getting a little old? >> well, actually, it's not a blame game. it it's a branding game. and he is branding the republican party, what they really are right now is almost the tea party. the rush limbaugh party. the fringe party. the no party. so it's not really a blame game. it's real little a branding game. and it's true. >> you think it's working? because can i tell you i was there for three years. >> right. >> scott: i know the president. o
